Fourteen-year-old midfielder Avery Appiah will move from Feyenoord’s academy to Ajax’s this summer.

The midfielder, who has Ghanaian roots, joined Feyenoord’s academy back in 2015 and is currently part of their U15 side.

However, Appiah has now decided to leave Rotterdam for bitter rivals Ajax, confirming the move on his Instagram account. Appiah said, “After five great years at Feyenoord, I decided to leave the club.┬áIn this way I can develop myself further as a footballer. I want to thank the club, the players and all the trainers for the past years.”

Appiah is not the first Feyenoord youngster to leave for their bitter rivals in recent years. Steven van der Sloot was the most recent, while Jurrien and Quinten Timber both made the move, along with Noa Lang.
